New Life Program graduation ceremony

Each year we hold four graduation ceremonies for the men, women, and families in our New life and Family Life Programs. 


The Rescue Mission hosts a number of events each year. Some events are unique, and others occur annually. Some events are executed in partnership with an outside organization, while others are conducted by the Mission team. The one constant across all our events is a shared focus of supporting the Mission in bringing Help, Hope, and Healing to those most vulnerable in our community.  

If you would like to get involved with events at the Mission, please peruse the information below to find the right fit for you. 

In addition, Lisa White, Development Director, would be happy to talk with you about any ideas for events that are not currently listed. Email or call 253-383-4493.

Sponsorship Opportunities


Quarterly Graduations

The Mission holds regular celebrations for individuals that have completed the requirements for our New Life and Family Life Programs. These typically include a presentation from the program director, a brief musical performance, and each graduate sharing the story of their personal triumph over homelessness and other life challenges.

Visit our Graduation Page for information about the next graduation celebration.

Rescue Race

Proceeds from the Rescue Race raised go directly to feeding the homeless in Tacoma at the Rescue Mission. In 2013, the Mission served over 270,000 hot meals to men, women and children struggling with homelessness. 

Golf Tournament 

For nearly 20 years, ASEI has been sponsoring a charity Golf Tournament to support the Mission. This tournament typically takes place in August, and is open to individual or team registrants of all skill levels.

Please visit the Gold Tournament Page to learn more. 

Fall Luncheon

Each fall, the Rescue Mission hosts a luncheon, or luncheons, to benefit the Mission. These events generate proceeds to support Mission programs, while also providing a vital opportunity to communicate with community members and partners who attend. 

If you would like to learn more about the Rescue Mission's latest endeavors and future plans, and have the chance to ask the CEO and staff members in-person questions, please visit our Luncheon Page to reserve your seat. 

Volunteer Events

The many events that happen throughout the year at The Rescue Mission would be impossible without the support of dedicated, passionate volunteers.

If you would like to volunteer, please visit our Volunteer Page, to learn how to get involved. 

You can also contact Volunteer & Intern Manager Jessicca Brathwaite for more information 253.383.4493.
